Rediscovering: Old joysticks

In 2024, joystick maker Seimitsu’s catalogue starts at part number LS-32. In the 80s, they made a rotating ‘loop lever’ joystick, used in SNK’s Ikari Warriors arcade games, which was the LS-30. But I recently found a joystick that has a lower part number than that, and it doesn’t seem like it exists on the internet. Which is interesting!

Rediscovering: Override

This little 2mbit shooter from St!ng, for the PC Engine, was made from pure enthusiasm. It’s not sophisticated or overly polished, but it’s solid and great fun.

Rediscovering: Sutte Hakkun

Another SuperNES platform game in the Rediscovering series. This time, it’s Sutte Hakkun (すってはっくん), a Japanese puzzle game originally released for the Satellaview satellite add-on, and much later as a retail cartridge in 1999, the year of the Dreamcast.

Rediscovering: Magical Hats

Back in 1989 I had imported a MegaDrive just before the Genesis launched, and got to experience the magic, or rather, the boatload of suck, that was the early 16 bit library.
